Our tutors are Paul Maslowski and Claire Seaton and cater for experienced painters and complete beginners. Interested in joining us? Please contact Paul or Claire on 01858 410 167 or Claire on 07393 280 929. You can also e-mail: pmcbp1@gmail.com

Our sessions run from 09:45am – 4pm with most people arriving about 9.15am to set up and start the day with some gentle Qi Gong.

The group has been running now for over 17 years and was founded by Judith Watson and Di Morte. For 2020 we removed the ‘Traditional’ from our name to recognise the fact that we now look at all Chinese Art whether Traditional, Contemporary or Modern.

Autumn 2019 workshops

  • Saturday 7th November: Flowers – Poppies
